We already saw that Ellen tweeted out some kind words for Jason Collins yesterday when he made the announcement that he was gay and STILL an active player in the NBA! She then took that a step further and took a moment out of her own show to support him and wish him well!
We have that amazing moment for you (above)!
Seriously, we can't echo Ellen's sentiments enough! Jason, this is a huge deal — we don't have to tell you that. And we're sure you know what it means to your community and future LGBT sports stars. We just don't want you to forgot how profoundly personal it is too, and remember that you're not just doing this for others, but also for yourself!
